Pink Floyd and Roger Waters news from the worlds most respected Pink Floyd/Roger Waters site. Over 50 Million visitors can't be wrong! Features the latest OFFICIAL news, pictures, reviews, interviews, lyrics, forum, links, and so much more.Now in its 17th big year, Pink Floyd A Fleeting Glimpse continues to attract new audiences. The site is widely acknowledged as a great source for Floyd news and has picked up a massive cult following over the years. (We passed the 50 Million visitor mark way back in Nov 2012!) A Fleeting Glimpse (Or AFG as its become known) is used by a cross section of the Floyd/Waters online community, including new fans & crusty old fossils, who spend all their life researching Floyd. I fit into the latter category by the way, having been a Floyd fan since 1966. My name is Col Turner, and I run this site on behalf of fans all over the planet. Without your contributions the site could not exist. If you have anything Floyd related that you think may be of interest, drop us a line (  Don't forget, in the best Pink Floyd tradition, there are several hidden links on this site, can you find them?

It's St. Nick! Just in time for Christmas, Nick Mason puts in a guest appearance on the stunningly beautiful Kirsty Bertarelli new single 'The Ghosts of Christmas Past'. The song was written by Kirsty, and in order to give it some extra power during the crescendo, she enlisted the help of a young choir from her home town. The 28 member choir is comprised of young adults and staff from the YMCA – none of whom had ever set foot in a professional recording studio before. The recording was made in Abbey Road’s huge Studio One – the world’s largest purpose-built recording studio. The choir was joined by Kirsty’s band, as well as by Nick Mason on drums. You can order the song/s (there's more than one) now from Amazon UK

The Endless River Round Up With so much information about The Endless River clogging up our main page we have moved most of the content to our Dedicated Section and would request you go there to access just about all the information that is available. Despite our closing off any further reviews recently, they still continue to come in, so a few more have been added to our special Fan Reviews section. The album has been a sensation in most parts of the world seeing it debut at Number 1 in most countries (The obvious exception being the USA where it debuted at Number 3)
David Gilmour Tour Dates Did you get excited when you read that headline? Well so did a lot of other fans when they read that recently on another site! (Apparently missing the disclaimer at the top that said the tour dates were based on the On An Island tour) We have had a stack of enquiries asking if the tour dates are legit and the answer is a resounding NO!!! No dates are announced yet, and the album isn't even finished! We have since been contacted by a representative of the site in question to say that they are going to make the disclaimers more obvious. UPDATE We are pleased to advise that the site in question have now updated the site to reflect the fact that the dates listed are suppositions only. It seems the confusion was caused by the site guessing a date in Brazil, that somebody misinterpreted as a fact, and circulated an email to that effect. (Probably something lost in the translation). All is well with the world now! You can be sure that if & when Official tour dates are announced they will be listed on AFG.
More Unreleased Music May Be Coming! In a revealing interview with Billboard Nick Mason has said that more unreleased music may be coming. Nick said "There's always a sort of discussion going on about what we could do,and it tends to be one of those things that I think is probably more driven by the record company than us. But we're always open to their ideas." In discussing a possible 'remix' of Animals Nick responded "I know both Roger & David have at times mentioned they'd like to have a remix of Animals, which technically is perhaps one of our less well-recorded records, I think we'd just probably clean up some of the tapes and just sort of review it and see whether it can be enhanced. And if one was doing that, one might have a look at whether there's anything else to be done on it. But no one's got that down on their work schedule at the moment." Nick also said that the Pink Floyd Anthology, that has been talked about for years, is getting ever closer. He said "I've spent a lot of time over the last few years putting together an archive of video and film footage, and I think it'd be an interesting thing to release at some time. Our problem is we go back so far to the point where no one recorded things; maybe there's some Super 8 stuff and a few early television appearances and things like that, which are fun. The biggest problem is when we were touring in the '70s, we never filmed or recorded the show, which would have been really nice now to have a look at those original Dark Side shows. So there's a funny old mix of stuff, but I think there's enough to do something really entertaining, eventually, when there's time to work on it."
